I love pansies and that's my favorite color for them, but I've never grown them here because I think they'd hate the mid-summer heat. Beautiful banner, GL!

They are very pretty! I make sure to plant them in a container, or they will start popping up in unusual places. They seem to come back every year..

My pansies are pretty much a spring annual. But I can put them out at the beginning of April and they last until the end of June, so that is totally worth it!

I didnt think they would come back, so I planted some in the ground a couple years ago. They pop up every spring. They must have deep roots. I agree, totally worth it!!

Maybe I'll try planting some next year very early spring in the front of the perennial border and see what they do. I can always have some short salvias from seeds ready to swap in for the hotter days.
